Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s proposal to establish Khadi India’s first international enterprise in Bhutan was encouraged with a view to promoting Khadi globally.
The Indian embassy in Bhutan said in a statement on Thursday that it has been proposed to retail Khadi in Thimphu to bring clothes of Indian heritage to Bhutan.
The proposal was followed in a special program called Khadi-Thago.
The event was organized by the Embassy of India along with the Royal Textile Academy to jointly commemorate the legacy of Khadi and traditional Bhutanese clothing on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
The event had 48 artists, featuring prominent designers from India and Bhutan, adorning Khadi with Thadzo’s hand-made textile dragon.
